Body

DISCUSSION / BACKGROUND

 

The Human Resources (HR) Department received notice that the Risk Manager has been selected for a military deployment assignment for a period of November 30, 2020 through November 30, 2024.  During the previous shorter term deployments in 2018-2019 and 2020, the HR Department hired a temporary, extra help staff person and re-distributed the work amongst available HR staff.

 

Given the length of this deployment and technical knowledge and skills necessary to not only mitigate risk for the County, but also provide adequate customer service, it’s necessary to temporarily fill the Risk Manager position with a full-time resource over the next four years.  Therefore, a full-time, limited term Risk Manager allocation is being requested for four years.

 

The purpose of this position is to manage the risk function, which includes supervising the Risk Management Division, functional responsibility for loss control, safety, contracts, insurance, workers’ compensation, and liability programsUpon Board approval, a recruitment will be conducted to fill the position.

 

ALTERNATIVES

The Board could choose not to approve the addition of the limited term allocation.
